The Stapleton Redevelopment Project was Iron Woman’s first project, allowing us to showcase our commitment to “Building Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow.” The work at the former Stapleton International Airport helped establish our company as an important team member for public-private partnerships and set the tone for our continued participation on high-profile Front Range projects.
Iron Woman provided on-site hauling of concrete and asphalt from the former airport to an on-site recycling center for processing into usable aggregates for the redevelopment. We also provided trained, experienced staff to manage contaminated soils encountered during the project.

In 1995 when the opening of Denver International Airport meant the closing of Stapleton International Airport, Denver had the unique opportunity to transform 7.5 square miles of runways, concourses and terminals into a beautiful new community. It would be the largest urban in-fill redevelopment in the country and, to this day, one of the largest in-fill projects ever.
